Orlando Personal Injury Attorneys / Orlando Premises Liability Attorney

Orlando Premises Liability Attorney

Property owners have a duty of care to ensure that their premises are safe for everyone. If they fail to fix a damaged hand railing on a staircase, enclose a swimming pool with a sturdy fence, or fix faulty electrical wiring that could potentially give a customer a shock, they can be held financially accountable by a personal injury claim. Premises liability claims apply to private homeowners as well as business owners and public entities. If you were injured in a slip and fall, dog attack, assault, swimming pool accident, or any other type of premises incident, you may be entitled to damages. The Orlando premises accident attorneys at The Hornsby Law Group are here to assist you with your claim.

Slip and Falls and Trip and Falls

Slip and falls (which also include trip and falls) are the number one type of premises liability claim because so many property owners fail to maintain their places of business, homes, or public or private establishments. It may seem like a no-brainer to repair a damaged set of stairs, or put down a mat at a store entrance when it is raining outside, but the truth is that there are trip and fall hazards everywhere, and it is only a matter of time before someone gets injured if these hazards are left untouched.

Swimming Pool Drownings

Public and private swimming pools must adhere to certain state regulations, such as being fully enclosed from the outside by a barrier of at least four feet high, and be outfitted with a self-closing gate. If a drowning injury or death happens in a homeowner’s pool that is found to not be outfitted with the appropriate safety barriers, they can be sued for negligence.

Negligent Security

Bars, nightclubs, parking garages, and other establishments have a duty of care to provide a reasonable amount of security to deter robberies, car jackings, assault, and sexual assaults from occurring on their premises. Failing to provide reasonable measures, such as security guards or cameras, can result in a negligent security claim against the property or business owner.

Dog Bites

Victims of dog attacks can seek damages from a homeowner even if the attack did not occur on the dog owner’s premises. Dog attacks that happen anywhere are considered premises liability claims, despite the bite or attack happening down the street, at the park, or even in another city altogether.
